Xavier Prep proved that on Friday (March 6) with a 2-0 victory over visiting Mesa Red Mountain at Petznick Field, winning on sacrifice flies by Cameron Martin and Berdina Riggs.
Xavier climbed to 8-1, while Red Mountain slipped to 5-4. Red Mountain eliminated Xavier 3-2 in the quarterfinals of the 6A Conference state tournament last season.
Sophomore pitcher Riley Flynn pitched her second two-hit shutout in as many days to earn the win.
Xavier will get a break until March 16, when it plays Avondale La Joya at Petznick Field.
